A simple yet elegant mala, crafted of genuine sandalwood offset with a saffron tassel. The rich fragrance of sandalwood is believed to facilitate alertness during meditation. 18 beads, 3/8” diameter. Approximate total beaded length 7 1/2"
Large, beautiful sandalwood beads make this a very large mala. I cannot wear it but I know someone who can.
Beautiful and pleasant smelling. I used to visit the temple as a kid and smell immediately brought me back there. The bracelet size definitely runs a little large I ended up taking apart mine and retied it.
I love the color and strong smell of the sandalwood. I wear it only during practice since it's a little too loose for everyday wear - average-size wrists might find it the perfect fit! The saffron tassel is a lovely touch of color.
